Notes

In preparaton of circulating this source, I asked Jim to help differtiate this source from
Chalie Miller's release of Steve Rolfe's recording.
His reply follws:

Steve Rolfe and I taped that show together, my deck (Sony tcd-5) was patched out of Steve's D5,
same signal but two separate cassette masters...

The reason this is different from Charlie Miller's release of Steve Rolfe's recording is because
it's my master, not Steve's master. The main differance is that Charlie Miller did not decode the
dolby properly (both mine and Steves masters were dolby B encoded). If you listen to the Miller
transfer of the Rolfe master, you'll hear the artificially equalized shrilly high end that's typical
when you leave the dolby switch in the "off" position of a tape that was originally dolby encoded.

David Minches did mine with a tweaked Nak Dragon and properly decoded the dolby on playback ...
If you playback this Minches transfer and adjust the high end to be boosted a bit, you'll experience
a much more natural sounding recording ... especially on higher end gear. That's the whole point
of having David remaster my work in 24/96 ...our Idea is to allow the end user to enjoy the sound and
adjust the tonal balance according to his, or her own preference, rather then have someone else
make those decisions for you during pre-production.

Subject: Interesting.
It has been decades since I fooled with taping. It used to be the only way to get lp quality into your car deck. Flipping that dolby switch could fix a recording with sibilance in the 7K range but it could also mute a good recording.

I notice that as I increase the volume on this release the muted highs are less apparent, which is the opposite of what happens with charlie's version which starts to get shrill.

I've got the free Music Bee player installed on my pc and it has a very useful EQ function. I'll have to unzip your file and see if I can tweak the highs a bit.

Okay, this can be EQ'd to perfection and also played loud without issues. Nice job!

Thanks for your efforts!
